Metro will single-track Red Line trains this weekend to allow for track repairs.
Riders can expect delays to service because of the single-tracking Red Line trains Saturday and Sunday. Workers are scheduled to replace broken pieces of rail, rail fasteners and coverboards for the power-source third rail. Trains will single-track between Grosvenor and Twinbrook stations, also impacting White Flint station.
Starting July 21, buses will replace trains on a separate Red Line segment for 45 days, through Sept. 3. The project requires the continuous shutdown of Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland-CUA stations.
Red Line riders can switch to the Green Line to avoid taking a shuttle bus – changing trains at Fort Totten station and then at Gallery Place-Chinatown station, or vice versa.
